Dolby 3D is the Official 3D Provider for Comic-Con International 2009
James Cameron’s Avatar among highly anticipated Hollywood content
to be presented in Dolby 3D
Dolby Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: DLB) today announced that Dolby® 3D is the official 3D solution used to present content from major Hollywood studios at Comic-Con International® 2009. On July 23 and 24, 2009, in hall H at the San Diego Conference Center, Comic-Con 2009 participants will be able to experience the premium quality of Dolby 3D on one 55-foot main screen and three 25-foot screens distributed throughout the hall.
Comic-Con audience members will experience the latest in cutting-edge digital 3D with Dolby 3D’s unique full-spectrum color-filter technology that provides realistic color reproduction and extremely sharp images. Dolby 3D ensures that attendees will enjoy a rich, compelling 3D experience from any seat in the 6,500 seat auditorium.
